All of the songs I listed? Some of them? Any you think are just coincidences?

Garcia has said in past interviews that they dropped St. Stephen and Cosmic Charlie because they were difficult songs to pull off live, especially the bridges in both tunes. In this 1986 video interview, around the 17:40 mark, Garcia talks about bringing back old songs and how he's mostly against it. He talks about Cosmic Charlie specifically around 19:30.

I don't know about the rest of these songs. Of those listed, the only ones I can see benefitting from the two drummer arrangement are Dancing in the Street and Alligator. The rest of these songs don't require polyrhythm, in my opinion. Weir and Ratdog play Minglewood, Candyman, and FOTD with one drummer, for example.

Hey, you might have thought of it! I was surprised the idea had never occurred to me before, since I'd been struck for some time by the number of old songs they brought back into the repertoire in 1976--I had just never associated it with Mickey's return.
